The MOKALAB investigates mechanisms of neurodegeneration in the human retina, and its regenerative potential. We are particularly interested in age-related macular degeneration (AMD), one of the most common causes of vision loss worldwide. With the help of human retinal organoids and cell systems, we hope to contribute to new therapeutic strategies to prevent vision loss and to restore retinal cell, structure and function.
